Iron Wheel

by Greg Miller
 

See All Formats & Editions

The poems in Iron Wheel are hard won, the product of the clash of cultures: Southern, religious, gay. Miller achieves an intense, disturbing, and singular poetic voice, capable of tenderness, but undaunted when forced to confront the harsh, often violent realities of contemporary life in the South.

Editorial Reviews

Thomas Gunn
I particularly like Greg Miller's combination of the awkward and unfinished in feeling and tone with the "finish" of his language and versification. It's a difficult balance to achieve, but he manages it magnificently. -- Thom Gunn

What People are Saying About This

Fenton Johnson
Greg Miller has composed a kind of sacrament, in "praise both of the world and of release." In their sum, these poems offer the careful reader the vision of experience of that place where dark merges seamlessly into light; the house and home of grace -- unasked for and perhaps undeserved, but transformative all the same. Exhilarating, mysterious, troubling, profound, and finally transcendent.
